We are pleased to invite you to celebrate an evening of glamour and decadence as we mark 25 years of our largest fundraising event at The Darling Home for Kids.

Join us on Thursday, October 26th, 2023, for The Butterfly Ball: On The Silver Screen.

Step back in time and walk our red carpet as we transport you to an era of optimism and joie de vivre – Old Hollywood. Sip on an old-fashioned or martini as you roam the cocktail reception and bid on silent auction items, before indulging in a delicious meal and exciting live auction. The night will end on the dance floor as we raise funds to support the children and families who rely on The Darling Home for Kids. 

We look forward to seeing you there! 

A storied, grand affair, the Gala has raised in excess of $4.5 million over the past 24 years, in support of the children and families who rely on The Darling Home for Kids.  Join us to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our annual gala on Thursday, October 26th.

If you’d like to sponsor, reserve your table/tickets or donate to the live and silent auctions, please contact:
